Race into the Excitement of Formula One

Patrick Imbardelli is already excited about the 2016 Formula One racing season. While it is merely the middle of April, fans of Formula One racing have been treated to three thrilling Grand Prix events on the Formula One circuit.

Beginning with the March 18 to 20 opener in Australia, the 2016 Formula 1 Rolex Australian Grand Prix offered drivers the opportunity to show their driving acumen on the Melbourne Grand Prix Circuit. With a circuit length of 5.303 kilometers and requiring 58 laps to complete the race distance of 307.574 kilometers, the premiere race of the Formula One season did not disappoint. The top three drivers for this event were Nico Rosberg (Germany, Mercedes), Lewis Hamilton (Great Britain, Mercedes), and Sebastian Vettel (Germany, Ferrari), which gives a nod to both Germany and Mercedes for each of them appearing twice in the top three categories of the first Formula One Grand Prix in 2016.

Following on the heels of the opening Grand Prix was the 2016 Formula 1 Gulf Air Bahrain Grand Prix, which ran from April 1 to 3. The Bahrain International Circuit, which is almost entirely below sea level, presents some demanding hairpin turns on its 5.412 kilometer track, so it was inevitable that this race would deliver excitement and suspense during the race. The fastest three drivers for this go-around were Nico Rosberg (Germany, Mercedes), Kimi Räikkönen (Finland, Ferrari), and Lewis Hamilton (Great Britain, Mercedes), giving Nico Rosberg two successive first place finishes and Lewis Hamilton ending up with second and third place finishes in the first two races.

Most recently, from April 15 to 17, the 2016 Formula 1 Pirelli Chineses Grand Prix in Shanghai, China kept avid fans such as Patrick Imbardelli glued to their television screens for the weekend. The 5.451 kilometer circuit (with 56 laps making it a total of 305.066 kilometers) has one particular turn that never fails to stop the hearts of even the fiercest spectators. The best three drivers for this match up turned out to be Nico Rosberg (Germany, Mercedes), Sebastian Vettel (Germany, Ferrari), and Danil Kvyat (Russia, Red Bull Racing), giving Nico Rosberg a commanding lead in the 2016 Formula One Racing season.

As always, Formula One never fails to deliver when it comes to excitement, suspense, and pure speed.
